Maple Leaf Green World (NEO:MGW, OTCQB:MGWFF) is an Alberta-based company with cannabis facilities in Telkwa, British Columbia and Henderson, Nevada. The company is set to release its first crop of product into soon to be legalized Canadian cannabis market in early 2019.

Maple Leaf is committed to producing high-quality product, implementing sustainable cultivation practices. To this effect, the company announced its extraction and cultivation teams this past summer, which include Head of Cultivation and Cannabis Technology, Kenneth Suydam among other known names in the industry.

In a recent article, The GrowthOp interviewed Suydam about the experience he brings to his current position and the vision he has for cannabis cultivation. Using the passion for gardening that he got from his father, Suynab started growing cannabis as a remedy for his own anxiety. He then worked with industry professionals like Nick Tanem from Essential Extracts, developing an expertise in full genetic potential. He has since become an award-winning grower, having taken second place for Indica and Hybrid categories at the first High Times Cannabis Cup in 2014, and coming first for the Rosin title at the Chalice Awards in 2015.

Suydam currently leads Maple Leaf’s team at the Nevada cultivation facility, and he still is very much involved in the growing process. He understands the need to make adjustments for each strain, and that there is no ‘cookie-cutter’ approach to growing cannabis. “To produce optimum renditions of anything, an individualized approach is necessary,” he is quoted as saying.

BevCanna Enterprises (CSE:BEV,OTCQQ:BVNNF,FWB:7BC) CEO Marcello Leone shared how the company is scaling up its products to forge partnerships and explore opportunities across Canada, the US and Western Europe. 

“Getting your standard processing license and being fully compliant at a federal level is critical in Canada, and we were successful in getting that done. Now we’re getting ready to launch our Keef line of beverages within the next 45 days,” Leone said. 

As a young company, Leone said BevCanna has only started, but it took a four-pronged approach to make sure that it is a revenue-generating company prepared for the opening of many jurisdictions for CBD-based products.

“We are blessed that we have a beautiful infrastructure of our own, a state-of-the-art bottling facility with a capacity of almost 200 million bottles per annum and a strong balance sheet of $55 million. We are in a strong position to scale and grow this company.”

BevCanna has received a Standard Processing License from Health Canada and is now fully authorized to begin production at its full-service, high-capacity beverage manufacturing facility. The company will begin production of its white-label products, number one US cannabis beverage brand Keef and its in-house beverages through licensed Canadian retailers, positioning the company to fully capitalize on the burgeoning Canadian cannabis-infused beverage sector.
